Pet Grooming Software Helps Franchisee Double her Fleet in Less than a Year

Pet grooming software helped this Maine pet grooming franchisee launch a second grooming van, and triple her staff in just seven months.

“I started in Jan of 2017 after purchasing an Aussie Pet Mobile franchise based in Maine,” says Aussie Pet Mobile franchisee Emmy Letourneau. “Business has been phenomenal — in our first 8 months, we have 2 vans and 3 full-time groomers grooming six days a week.”

Aussie Pet Mobile was founded in Australia in 1996 and established its global headquarters in the United States in 1999. It has grown to become the number one brand in mobile pet grooming worldwide.

Rapid Growth and Loyal Customers

“I hired my first groomer in April, my second groomer in June and my third last week!” says Letourneau. “My second van hit the pavement in July.”

After a very successful start, Letourneau is grateful to both her team and her fast-growing customer base. “The groomers make the business; they work hard and have to love animals and people. Every one of our customers has had a hand in getting us to where we are today. I am so thankful for the love and support from our wonderful customers.”

Pet Grooming Software Makes it Possible

Letourneau’s Aussie Pet Mobile franchise area is centered in Maine and includes almost 90 zip codes. That kind of coverage area makes scheduling and route optimization important to her profitability. “As a mobile groomer we need visibility to where an appointment is located, in relation to other appointments already booked,” says Letourneau. “We also need to be able to customize appointment durations, travel times and sometimes pricing based on several different factors. Vonigo allows us to do all those things and then some.”
